Raiders continue torrid signing pace
By Bill Williamson
Update: Schefter made a correction. He said the deal is actually for $8 million for two years. That is a big, big load for a player is a part timer.
Update: The Oakland Tribune is reporting special teams standout Rock Cartwright has also agreed to terms.
INDIANAPOLIS -- The Oakland Raiders are dominating the NFL’s news cycle Thursday and cutting checks at a crazy rate.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter has just reported that the Raiders have re-signed defensive tackle John Henderson for two years for a total of $8 million.
Henderson signed with Oakland last year, is a strong run stuffer and had 30 tackles in nine games. But the key for Henderson is his health. He missed seven games last season because of a foot injury. He must stay healthy for this signing to be worth it.
Oakland also signed Stanford Routt and Kamerion Wimbley earlier in the day.
